We packed up the gear on Saturday and headed to Mad River Mountain for their annual Swamp Stomp. For those of you that are not sure, the Swamp Stomp is an event where they dig a pit at the bottom of one of the slopes and fill it with water.
This years pit was 150 ft long and about 12 ft wide. It was so cool to see these guys (and girls) come tearing down the slope and skip across the water. A lot of them made it all the way, some of them fell short. One thing is for sure, it was a blast. While out there, Greg decided to test out how well his D300 is sealed to the elements. Looks as if Nikon did a good job because his camera just had to be dried off. It was back up and working just fine later that day. I wish I could say the same thing for Greg. He got a really bad sun burn. I got some sun too, but mine just gave me a reddish face with a funny hat tan line.
Here are a few more pictured from the event. As you can see even the ones who didn’t make it made for great photos.
